Thanks for this, Vikram, it's quite interesting.

I'd long understood that one should never shoot clay pigeons over ground where hogs are run, as the clay pigeons are poisonous to them. Actually, I think that the petroleum in the clay pigeons is poisonous to the liver, but because pigs are omnivorous, eating whatever is on the ground (including broken clay pigeons), they are the most affected.

Now, I understand that there are bio-friendly clay pigeons, but I don't know what they are made of.

I was educated about the makeup and mixing of clay pigeon ingredients, as well as the manufacturing process. Thanks for posting the video!

Thanks for sharing, Vikram.
Nice short video, explaining the entire process.
I always thought they were made with a mixture of clay, very interesting.
